The logistics of running a project of this scale are of course significant, but experienced hands make easy work. Sian and Emily are back for another year and the show is back on the road. There are some new challenges to be overcome, most notably the lack of our department’s iconic Land Rovers and the explosion in the local nettle and thistle population of the Paddock!

The story so far! Previously we have uncovered some hints of a Roman presence in the Paddock in the form of a thin pebble surface, which has now been removed, and Roman masonry reused as foundations for an Anglo-Saxon building. As we will now be excavating the layers below the Saxon building, we hope to update you with more definite evidence soon!
Stay tuned for further updates and another productive dig season.
